If were strictly talking right now, than Id give the nod to Toney. Who knows when was the last time Mike used his hands.
If your talking about Prime Tyson vs. Prime Toney, it isnt even a discussion. Tyson would kill him.
Toney was naturally a smaller fighter.
He is very skilled and has a good countering game, but he couldnt handle the beast that Tyson was.

Tyson had both amazing speed and power. Toney would easily become overwhelmed. What worked against lesser fighters, would be harder to pull off againt Mike.
James is very durable and has never been completely KO'd, but If a Prime Tyson started finding the target, he KO's ANYONE.
